Storyline

Michael, Janet, Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason are ready for the reboot of the neighborhood, Michael and Janet outwardly performing the functions they had the previous go 'rounds, with the four humans hoping that their presence will result in what happened the previous times, namely that they can help transform the four recently deceased humans Shawn has chosen for this experiment into good people who deserve to spend their eternity in the Good Place. Things don't go quite according to plan as there is much more at stake emotionally for all six of them this time around - Michael and Janet who had no human emotion when they did it under the Bad Place experiment - knowing eternity for them and for the human race is on the line, some who may be more mentally equipped than others for what is to come.

Quotes

Eleanor Shellstrop: I don't normally cry at movies... but that one was pretty good. That girl was hot.
[smiles]
Eleanor Shellstrop: The guy was, too.
Chidi Anagonye: I'm gonna miss you so much, Eleanor.
Eleanor Shellstrop: Except you won't. That's what's so scary about this whole thing. I'm gonna miss you, you're just gonna think I'm some sexy, godlike figure who you wanna hump immediately after meeting her.
Chidi Anagonye: I know you're deflecting by making jokes about how hot you are...
Eleanor Shellstrop: [tearfully] It's not a joke, I'm a legit snack.

bittersweet, but excellent
26 January 2019 | by ivkoSee all my reviews

While it may not have seemed as crazy-thrilling-ride as the previous two season closers, what's really interesting is that this season finished with the team making a very proactive decision, as opposed to the reactive finales of seasons one and two. This time, instead of desperately dashing from one place to the next to save their hides, they make a conscious choice to take the next step. One which ultimately involves a large sacrifice for the greater good.

This show is all about transition; it never languishes in one spot for very long. Right or wrong, I have always felt that the constant evolution is a metaphor for life. Life is change: you may see aspects of what came before in the things that are happening now, but really they are never the same twice. That's a good thing, because change means growth and new opportunities. But it can also be sad and difficult to accept that for new things to grow sometimes old things have to die.

And so as season 3 comes to a close in a semi-familiar setting, I think the show is also bringing something else, something that many fans loved, to a close. Still, the journey of team cockroach isn't complete yet; who knows what new things to love they'll give us next season? I loved this season and I think the writers have earned enough faith to believe that wherever they are headed will be hilarious and worth falling in love with all over again.
